During her career, singer Nancy Wilson was labeled as a blues, jazz, R&B, pop, and soul performer, as well as a "consummate actress" and "the complete entertainer". The title she preferred, however, was "song stylist". In 1960 and 1961, she participated on two jazzoriented collaborative LPs; one with alto saxophonist Cannonball Adderley, and the other with pianist George Shearing.

Both albums alternated between vocal and instrumental songs. This edition compiles all of Wilson's vocal tracks from those albums (both of which received a rating on AllMusic), showcasingher unique voice in the inimitable company of Adderley's and Shearing's groups
